Thanks Jason! Yes, taken with the iphone handheld up to the eyepiece. The 11 Pro Max is actually able to do 20 second exposures so I can get some nice widefield sky shots. It also has image stabilization which helps a lot.

Very nice, Jason!!! A lot better than what we got here in Hawaii. Our low northern latitude made it a bit more difficult to see and of course the moon is getting brighter now but we got some good views the other night. :-)

I actually caught it the other night and it was pretty good. Not Hale-Bopp by any means but pretty nice. Justine and I spent over an hour viewing it and then when it got too low we looked at various other objects with binos and the 80mm refractor. Tried to get pics of it but they aren’t very good.

Hey Jason,
I’ve seen it only under poor conditions. Tried to take pics but they didn’t come out well. It was an averted vision object to see the tail. And now we have a hurricane approaching so I won’t get another chance. :-(

This may be the best comet since Hale-Bopp in the 90’s. Going to check it out tonight, visible around 4am.

Here’s the first single from our forthcoming CD. We’re going to release a few singles before doing the whole album. This song is about people being open to new experiences. 🤘 https://open.spotify.com/track/1twOhkTgvkgz8WpulpdjW2?si=UbswJs5zSs2g4IcgxqwCgA https://m.soundcloud.com/user-5568165/give-it...

Haha yeah I was a bit nervous! But Hawaiian honeybees are pretty chill. If it was one of those African bees, I’d have ran the other direction.

Thanks Jason. Yeah it’s pretty cool. It would be incredible to see a naked eye star like this go supernova in our lifetime, though probably unlikely. Still, seeing it vary in brightness even more than usual is pretty neat.

I’m not sure if I mentioned to you that I use your list as a guide for my tour guides at the adventure company I manage. The tour guides love it and it really helps give them some good ideas of what to observe on a given night. And I enjoy using it for my personal observing as well. Much appreciated...

One year later, my XS Max got water damaged so I got the 11 Pro Max and it’s an even better camera, especially at night!

Had a chance to get some nice views through the Coronado Solarmax 60 we use at work. Handheld phone shots so not the best bit you can clearly see Mercury as a tiny dot on the right side of the disc about halfway up.

Best camera I’ve ever seen in a phone. These are all handheld shots taken with night mode and set to a 3 second exposure
